generate_abstracts - Regenerate all the static abstract pages for an EPrint repository


generate_abstracts repository_id [options] [eprintid]


This script recreates every static abstract page for an eprints repository. To save load on the database, as archived data should not change, EPrints creates static webpages containing the summary of each eprint. If you change the way the abstracts are rendered or change the site template then you will want to run this script.


  • repository_id
The ID of the eprint repository to use.
  • eprintid
An optional integer indicating that only the abstract page for record eprintid should be updated. Handy for testing new configurations.


  • --help
Print a brief help message and exit.
  • --man
Print the full manual page and then exit.
  • --quiet
Be vewwy vewwy quiet. This option will supress all output unless an error occurs.
  • --verbose
Explain in detail what is going on. May be repeated for greater effect.
  • --version
Output version information and exit.
